Webinar: A New Paradigm for Early Stage Wind Microclimate Studies
- 11th October 2018
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Local authorities are increasingly requesting wind microclimate reports in support of applications for new developments involving tall buildings. An Environmental Impact Assessment based around wind tunnel tests or computer simulations (CFD) is often too late in the process to allow significant changes to be implemented. However, a detailed wind study at the start of RIBA stage 2, when alternative massing options are still being considered, is often deemed irrelevant, premature and the evaluation of many design variants too expensive.
The solution – a desktop wind study. This would highlight any major issues of early design options, allowing more thorough evaluation at later stages. A desktop wind study accounts for seasonal variation in wind conditions takes into account surrounding townscapes and predicts resulting wind flow.
Wouldn’t it be useful if alternatives could be evaluated live?
Thanks to ANSYS Discovery Live‘s game-changing technology, this is now a reality. This real-time simulation software makes it possible to bring early-stage wind studies in-house, enhance the desktop wind study and invoke a conversation amongst stakeholders based around live evaluations of alternatives and exploration of “what-ifs”.
Join this webinar to explore how ANSYS Discovery Live can improve early-stage and desktop wind studies.
Webinar starts at 14:00 BST

Demonstrations will show how:
- buildings can be quickly modelled and analysed within urban environments
- wind flows from different directions can be quickly applied
- flow patterns can be visualised, interrogated and communicated within project teams
- proposed changes to building geometry can be made and evaluated in real time
The concise presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
